My GRATITUDE for grace and the Gospel grows when I realize that I am not required to work hard to be saved! (Ephesians 2:8-9)
This is one of the hardest concepts for a followers of Jesus to realize. It seems impossible that we would ever get something BIG for absolutely NOTHING! But, that my friends truly is real when it comes to Jesus. We absolutely have to do nothing.
Do you realize what that means for you and me? Think about it!
It means that we don't have to be good enough. We don't have to give more. We don;t have to know more. We don't have to have all the answers. We don't have to say the right thing at the right time. We are completely free to simply be present. We simply exist moment to moment.
God's greatest desire is that you and I simply be present with Him in each passing moment. It is in those moments that we are healed, set free and made whole. Those are the moments that truly transform our lives.
Take a few moments and thank God for the free to simply be present!
